We finally got them!
Sunday 3 June 2007
After 3 long weeks, dreaming of our very own bikes, we finally got the liberating email from the bike store! It took a long trip to the Netherlands, and an extra hour of traffic jam, before we could finally see the beautiful Avaghon series:
How do we like things:
- Brooks conquest leather saddle
- 4 Ortlieb saddlebags
- 14-speed Rohloff gears are just the best invention for a bike after the wheel!!!
- Deore XT group
- Tubus carriers in front and back
- Steel frame
- Holder for regular 1.5 liter bottle
- Ergon handlebars
- Anatomic Bar ends
- 40-17 gears instead of the standard 42-16
- 15 degrees angle steering wheel
- 26" Schwalbe Marathon XR tires
- Magura HS-33 hydraulic brakes
They ride like lightweight bulldozers, unstoppable and fast. Till we buy a very decent lock, and we un-fancy them with lots of nasty stickers, they will be sleeping close to us in our living room...
